Re: waking/dream/deep-sleep

Dear Anbil Swamigal:

Pardon me for this question.  I agree that the experiences are as real 
during the dream as in the waking state.  But are the objects real or did it 
really happen.  Suppose you visit some place in a dream did you actually 
visit it.  Or if you meet a person in a dream did you actually meet him.  
Certainly not from the other person's standpoint.  Objects in dream are but 
mental impressions and if you say God creates these impressions it is more 
plausible.  Once again pardon me for these questions as coming from a 
simpleton and would be really interested in knowing what exactly is the 
position of our siddhAntam.
